Afghanistan Misperceives China as an Honest Broker in Peace Process:

Paper No. 6554                           Dated 27-Mar-2020

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Contemporaneously, with the conflictual state of US-China relations, any speculation on emergence of China as an honest broker in Afghan peace processes in the wake of impending US Forces exit from Afghanistan is fallacious and misperceived and thus ignoring US global national security interests.

Corona Virus: China Falters and the World Suffers:

Paper No. 6549                             Dated 15-Mar-2020

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan

It is not disputed that the Corona virus now officially named Covid-19 originated in Wuhan of Hubei Province China.

Official Chinese sources say that it was on December 10, 2019 that the first case was reported.  One Wei Guixien started feeling sick.  He had probably visited the local Chinese wild life market where wild Civet Cats are traded.

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

President Xi JinPing made a two-day visit to Myanmar on 17th and 18th of January.  Though the visit was declared as one to mark the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between the two countries, the real reason for the visit appears to be to regain the momentum of the Chinese dominance in Myanmar which had shown some strains recently.

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Japan and India while adhering to diplomatic niceties may under-play or de-emphasise  the ‘China Threat’  as detrimental to Asian Security and to respective national security interests of Japan and India but undeniably the strategic reality is that it was their convergent strategic perspectives on ‘China Threat’ which strongly binds them in 2020 in Special Strategic Partnership.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation at 70- A Strategic Review:

Paper No. 6523                   Dated  14-Dec-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) which recently held its Summit on completion of 70 years of existence presented a spectacle of inherent contradictions in its ranks while at the same time in the Summit Statement defining a new strategic challenge in the form of China. It remains to be seen whether NATO remains focussed on the ‘China Challenge’.
